Full Product Description

Meet 'Charlie' - our newest pant style.  Not too relaxed. Not too slim.  Charlie is our middle child- featuring a tailored look, with a slight taper hip to hem. 

We've also switched up the fabric - the new, premium stretch cotton twill offers easy care, all day comfort with excellent recovery - to have you looking your best from morning coffee through Happy Hour, friend!

PLUS, the NEW Charlie pant features our innovative CURVED comfort waistband to add a little room after lunch or if you're between sizes, without the need for any elastic tabs.

What HASN'T changed?  Like all of our exclusive, FORtheFIT short men's pants before it, Charlie was designed specifically for shorter men up to 5'9" - uniquely designed and proportioned exclusively to provide an ideal FIT for shorter men up to 5'9 tall.  Average stores cater to average guys., and you my friend- are your own man! At FORtheFIT, we are keenly aware that finding pants that FIT correctly can be tricky.  "Regular" store-bought pants are just plain missized for men under 5'9"- resulting in ugly bunching, sagging and uncomfortable excess fabric through the seat and thighs. By contrast, FORtheFIT's short rise men's pants have been designed and proportioned for shorter men to offer an exceptionally superior fit, so you look (and feel) your best. This part will NEVER change- that's our promise to you.

Sizing Information / Size Charts

Size Charts will help you identify the perfect FIT for YOU in our Short Men's Pants. For additional sizing information, please check our Guide to Buying Short Men's Clothing and Short Men's Size Charts

There are 2 ways to find your waist size:

1) Please measure your natural waistline, or,

2) Measure the actual waistband on your best-fitting regular jeans or trousers

Whatever the actual measurement you see, that is the size you should order for a short rise jean or trouser. Don't simply order the size you've always purchased in regular rise trousers, order your actual waist measurement in short rise trousers and prepare yourself for fit on a whole other level than you've experienced before.

For length, we provide INSEAM length. Inseam refers to the distance from crotch seam to hem.

NEW to wearing "Short Rise" Pants? If you have never had a true short-rise pair of pants before, you are in for a treat. But, please keep in mind that you may find that you need to go UP a waist size from your usual purchase, since to date, you may have been buying down a size of traditional rise pants in order to get a half-reasonable fit.

Exceptions & Final Sale Items

As we sell a lot of different items, there are a few exceptions to our returns policy and a few special cases to take note of.

Non-US orders:

If you are located outside of the US, please note that we will only receive your return items for refund or store credit (which you may use to place a reorder at your convenience).  Return shipping will be at customer expense (we will not reimburse for the cost of return postage) and we are unable to provide return postage labels for international orders. Because of the high postage costs, and additional complications (such as customs and duties), we are unable to process exchanges for international orders.  Thank you for your understanding.

However, if you have concerns about ordering or would like assistance identifying the best sizes and styles for you to ensure a great fit (with no need for return), please get in touch.

Defective Items:

Our items pass through rigorous quality control procedures prior to shipping out to you, but mistakes (though rare) do happen. Did we send you the wrong item or is there a problem with your order (such as a manufacturing defect or mislabeled item)? Simply select "Incorrect" or "Damaged" items as your reason for return so we can make appropriate arrangements with you.

Items that are Worn/Washed/Tagless/Damaged/Dirty/Stained:

Per our return policy, items received in worn, stained, washed damaged, tagless or in otherwise unsellable condition (that includes any items with lingering pet, tobacco or other smells, or covered with pet dander, other hair or excessive lint) may be, at our sole discretion:

  • Rejected for Return (returned to sender or discarded- at our sole discretion),
  • issued full or partial (minus restock fee) Store Credit,
  • And/Or refunded minus a restocking fee commensurate with the damage or delay.

Dress Shirts:

We get it – dress shirts are tricky. You have to remove them from the packaging in order to try them on, and getting them back in the package if they didn’t fit is a bit of a project. However, if you have to send one back to us, please make every effort to repackage the shirt as it was shipped to you (to the best of your ability) and include all packing materials intact.

For dress shirts out of their original packaging, we can either issue store credit or a refund, minus a re-stocking fee commensurate with the damage (because the truth is, once you’ve opened the package, we probably won’t be able to re-sell the shirt).

Please Note:
We hate restocking fees, too. If we can tell you tried REALLY hard to repackage neatly, we generally waive or reduce any re-stocking fees for shirts, so please do your very best.

Discontinued Items:

When we discount items scheduled to be discontinued, they are sold on the understanding that returns on these items are limited.  DISCONTINUED items are clearly marked as such in the title and product descriptions, and typically end in a .44 price. Items clearly marked DISCONTINUED are generally items that have been deeply discounted or discontinued and are being sold below our cost. Items sold on a Discontinued Only basis are accepted for store credit only, MINUS a $5 restock fee. Store credits cannot later be refund or turned to cash - they are final. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy. Discontinued items are different than items marked "FINAL SALE" - for final sale terms, please read on below.  

Non-Returnable Items

There are a few items on which we cannot offer returns for various reasons. These items are as follows:

Customized Items:

Items that have been personalized for you, including pants and trousers which have been hemmed to your exact specifications (fractional inseams, or inseams shorter than 26″ for short men’s trousers, and shorter than 34″ for tall men’s trousers) cannot be accepted for return.

Final Sale Items:

When we discount items for “final sale” they are sold on the understanding that they are not returnable. This does not mean that every sale or clearance item is ‘final sale’ Our FINAL SALE items are clearly marked as such in the title and product descriptions, and typically end in a .88 price. Items clearly marked FINAL SALE are generally items that have been deeply discounted or discontinued and are being sold below our cost. Items sold on a final sale basis will not be accepted for a refund, store credit or exchange, for any reason whatsoever.

Hygiene Items:

We cannot accept returns of underwear or swimwear items. This is of course for hygiene reasons as these items cannot be re-sold once they have been sent to a customer.

Holiday Themed:

Finally, any items which are Holiday themed (such as Christmas sweaters, for example) cannot be returned once the Holiday has passed and must be received at least 1 week prior to the Holiday. If timely received, these items can be returned according to the rules of our standard return policy.

Returns During The Holidays

We understand that during the holidays you may be buying gifts and may not be sure about size or whether the person you are buying for will like the item. Plus, many of you like to get an early start on Holiday shopping and we can appreciate that, too! For this reason we have an extra generous returns policy for the Holiday period each year.

For any order placed between October 1st and November 18th, you have 30 days from purchase date to receive a cash refund, but you are welcome to request store credit or an exchange as late as January 5th.  For any order placed on or after November 19th, you have up until the later of January 5th OR 30 days after your purchase to return any of the items purchased for a refund, store credit or exchange. *Bundles and Final Sale Items Excluded from Holiday Return Terms

All of which means you have plenty of time to present your gifts to friends and family and still get a refund, exchange or credit for an item that’s not quite right. For all other terms and conditions, please review full return rules above.

Charlie - Flat-Front Stretch Cotton Chino - Tailored / Slim Fit - Short Rise Men's Pants - 3 Colors Available

Thanks for the review! We're glad you're enjoying the short rise mens pants.

William P. (Florida, United States)
Answer to a prayer!

Having a build like your "Charlie photo model" these are perfect for me. I had switched to a "slim fit" when purchasing pants recently, but the regular "rise" still didn't work, especially since most manufacturers don't make inseams shorter than 29"! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Thank you! We are so happy to hear that you found FIT for you! The Charlie is a great choice and we are so glad these short rise men's pants worked so well for you!

Catharine M.
Perfect fit

These are the first pants that I did not have to shorten for my husband who is 5’6”. The waist and length are both perfect. The fabric is also good looking and comfortable.

Thank you SO much for this great review! We're so glad you loved your short rise men's pants!
